Checked and stamped every year by the bodies involved in the control of weights and measures, measuring cups were used to verify the quantity of liquids sold, such as milk or wine. Our pewter measuring beakers are inspired by a series of antique originals from Central Italy. The substantially cylindrical shape of these items blends well with any type of furnishing. Our pewter drinkware items are entirely handmade by our pewter artisans, and stamped with the GT brand name, which is our guarantee of both high quality alloy and an excellent finish. The alloy we use for casting each object is tin, bonded with antimony and copper. The Italian pewter we use meets all EU and US requirements for food safety.
